Rated: Excellent Review by: Bryan Schubert

“ Very impressed of this set up; almost everything you will need. I just love this kit. A local company in my town wanted a lot more for this same kit. If you are looking to invest money in yourself as a starting out climber, this kit is for you. I feel great about purchasing this product, it's worth every dollar I spent. Thanks WesSpur for putting together this great kit. ”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Todd (Asheville, NC)

“As a completely inexperienced tree climber I found this kit to be everything I expected. Shipping was super fast and the YouTube video with nice guy Dave showed me the fundamentals on how to setup and use my kit. I will definitely make all purchases from WesSpur from now on.”

Rated: Good Review by: Colby

“Only problem I had is that I was Missing hardware to assemble my Spurs. Other than that everything was ok”

Rated: OK Review by: Chris

“This is an ok set to get you started. I am a new climber and put around 20 hours up in the trees in about 10 days. I would recommend trading the tree gaffs for more rope, figure 8, and carabiners. The harness is ok. It will get you in the tree to get the job done. The double lock carabiners are nice but offer a challenge when in a tree wearing gloves. I would recommend this to someone who wants to trim a few trees occasionally. If you plan on spending some time in the trees, get the upgraded harness kit. Your body will thank you. ”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Kit

“I got this set off Amazon.com and it has been awesome the only thing I have bought to add to it has been a rope bag and double eye split tail I love this set and will keep adding to it as my skills increase. Thank's WesSpur for making such a product as this one for the entry level arborist or recreational tree climber. ”
